Wendy Wisner is a writer, international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC), and mom of two. She writes about all things breastfeeding, maternal/child health, parenting, and general health and wellness for many publications, both online and in print.

Through my work as both a lactation consultant and parenting/health writer, I’ve learned that parents put a lot of pressure on themselves to fit into an idealized version of what 'good' parenting is supposed to look like. But every parent and every family is unique, and there is no one 'right' way to do it.
